Preparation for Birth as a Transformative Experience
Becoming a parent is a powerful journey filled with questions, excitement, some trepidation, and joy. Everywhere you turn you are likely receiving advice about how to birth, parent, feed, and care for your yet unborn child. Navigating the waters of pregnancy and birth can be challenging in the face of so much information and so many good intentions. Frankly, it can be too much. Together in these classes, we go beyond information (although you will learn what's important to know about birth) and into the self-exploration about navigating this powerful threshold crossing into parenting. Your time is valuable and precious. Let's make use of it wisely. Let's go deeper together and prepare you for birth not just in the mind but with your body, heart, and in your closest relationships too.
Are you wondering how to figure out what's right for YOU in the midst of so many opinions about labor, birth, and new parenthood?
Do you want to be deeply connected with your partner for birth and beyond?
Is being fully prepared for birth really important to you but you're not interested in attending a boring class?
If you are looking for classes that educate and prepare you for labor while facilitating deep connection between you and your partner for birth and beyond...
you have found them.

These classes are for those parents interested in going deeper into the transformative journey inspired by birth and new parenthood. These classes are for people who want to engage with other parents on the journey toward birth and are open to learning about and from others on a similar path. These classes are for those parents who want to prepare for birth fully and also recognize that events can and sometimes do go occur in ways other than we hope and expect. These classes are for those who want their partnership/relationship to play a key role in their birth and postpartum experience.

These classes are not for people interested in passive learning as these classes are interactive.
